Lavender Inn was originally the first schoolhouse in the town of Nordoff, which was changed to Ojai during World War 2. It was later the home of the Ojai mayor then later Ojai Manor Hotel. In 1996 it was converted to a Bed & Breakfast renamed to Moons Nest Inn. The Hartleys bought the buildings in 2003 and changed the name to Lavender Inn, lovingly remodeling through the years.

Charming Old Inn!!

A wonderful, historic inn that's been beautifully updated. The staff is friendly and helpful, there's a small spa next door and it's right in the middle of the small downtown. You can walk to everything, including many good restaurants. It's a small gem so book ahead.
